“For, after all,
put it as we may to ourselves,
we are all of us from birth to death guests at a table
which we did not spread.
The sun, the earth, love, friends, our very breath
are parts of the banquet….
Shall we think of the day as a chance
to come nearer to our Host,
and to find out something of Him
who has fed us so long?”
